Endodontics is the area of dentistry which focuses on studying and treating issues involving the dental pulp, or inner tissues of the tooth. When the pulp becomes injured or diseased, it can cause significant discomfort and sensitivity, and if left untreated, it may cause the tooth to die. If you are diagnosed with an injured or diseased tooth, an endodontic treatment may be recommended to save your tooth from extraction and help you regain your oral health.
Our dentist and team offer several types of endodontic treatment, including:
The most common type of endodontic treatment is root canal therapy. When you receive a root canal treatment, our dentist and team will remove injured and infected tissues from your tooth, thoroughly clean it, and fill it with a medicated material to help prevent re-infection. The tooth will then be capped with a dental crown to protect it from further damage and restore its strength and appearance.
When you visit our office, Dr. Jon Glenn will carefully evaluate your mouth to determine if an endodontic treatment is necessary and will create a treatment plan that meets your needs.
